ff 'try tf , % NINETEENTH YEAR. McCOOK , RED WILLOW COUNTY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY EVENING. MAY 1O , 19OI. NUMBER 32 Elect Teachers. The board of education held its regu Jar monthly session , Monday evening , al which time most of the teachers for th < ensuing school year were elected. Tlu following members of the teacher corp : were reelected : George H. Thomas superintendent ; Miss Celia A. Gorby , principal High school ; Miss Mary Pow. ers , Mrs. Belle Hedlund , Miss Ella Leon. ard , Miss Hannah Stangland , Miss Beatrice Wibley , Miss Mabel Wilcox , Miss Elizabeth Thomson , Miss Edna Garrard , Mrs. . J. G. Schobel. J. T , Holmes , Mrs. Mary Duffey and Miss Sarah Oyster were not candidates. The vacancies will be filled in due season. The matter of providing additional school-house facilities was discussed in , souie measure at the session , and preliminary in that liminary steps were authorized direction. Affairs have been further complicated by the fact that use of the West Denuison street building cannot be secured for another year. Besides the over-crowded stateof the schools demands imperatively more room The school district owns two lots just north of J. S. LeHew's residence and the board is con sidering the advisability of erecting a frame building thereon to meet require ments until the bonds now out against the school district shall have matured which will be in about eight years. This location is under consideration for the economical reason that the contemplated building can be heated from the East brick building , whobe janitor can also have the same in charge. While the plan proposed will not be an ideal one , it will for the present relieve the conges tion. It would also remove the little children from the street schools , which have always been objectionable. Means are at hand to erect the building in mind ; and perhaps no better plan can be advanced and carried to fruition. "Hughes' Colts" Win. The game of base-ball on last Saturday between "Hughes' Colts , " the Black smiths , and the Boilermakers was a game for your whiskers and no mistake , resulting in a victory for the Colts in a -close score n to 10. The game was played on the Athletic park diamond and both clubs were well represented by enthusiastic rooters. It was the first game of the season , and all agree that it was a "lulu , " and the close score sup ports the claim. Garvey and Hannan were in the box for the Colts and the Boilermakers were represented at the points by Wentz and Traver. The Colts attribute much of their vic- \ lory to "Friday" Wescott , who was at short. S5OO For Letters About Nebraska.
